Did you know that there is more than one way to close a letter than just to say, "sayonara"? Do you sometimes feel like the closing of your letter is bland, dull, and just missing the mark? Surprisingly, there is help available on this very pressing topic! I have in my letter writing notebook pages printed off from a web site called : Letterclosings.com which doesn't seem to be in existence any more. Those pages contain 694 imaginative, subtle, creative closings to use in letters and that was just the standard closings...there were two other categories that I didn't even save! A quick search on the internet, however, will lead you to some other sites which give useful assistance in this matter.
Here are a few of my favorite: Fare thee well! Hasta la vista, baby! Bubbles of Love...Affectionately yours.... Au revoir..devotedly...It's in your court...Tally ho!...Soonishly....Warmest greetings to all...your obedient servant...and oh....so many more!
What got me thinking of creative closings was a beautiful hand-written letter that was just handed to me today by a very sweet young correspondent. We are now officially pen pals! I thoroughly enjoyed her letter and thought that her closing was one of the best I had come across recently. Anyway , I wanted to share it with you ...
" You are one of my fav, best, forever ,amazing, great, wonderful, nice special friend!"
Who wouldn't love to receive such a sweet letter like this with such a charming closing?
